Category:   Pottery
Description:   Mended from many fragments; restored in plaster. Missing part of lip, handle, fragments from shoulder and wall, and chips from base. Figured scene depicts winged quadriga with winged charioteer. From the scene, the missing pieces include the top of the charioteer's head, the middle of his body, the top of the chariot rail, a bit of the wheel, the tips of the horses' tails and of the upper wing.
Clay-colored, polished (possibly with a dilute glaze wash): the top of the lip, the neck and shoulder, a band below the figured zone, the underside of the foot. Round the moulded ring at the junction of body and foot, two scratched lines; round the inner and outer edge of the top of the lip, and at the junction of neck and shoulder, a narrow band in darker clay color. Below this band, at the top of the shoulder, a collar of short strokes. Round the shoulder, three large palmettes with connecting tendrils; dots between. On each side of the handle, two long thick strokes with a shorter one between.
Incision for a few of the contours, and used freely for interior details. The feathers on the wing of the outer horse indicated by dots and short strokes; the reins also incised. For the ground, a thick dull yellowish slip, somewhat worn; the lip glazed inside.
